Great Career Willie Gay. The best stretch of his career was the 3 years after his return from Arizona. He was our best CB during that period, with solid play, and a number of big picks. Overall, a great career for a late 5th round pick. Big play Willie Gay was a hard worker and it payed off.

Thanks for your services Big Play Will Gay! A dream of a 5th rounder. As a fan, you wish they all worked out that well.

Willie Gay was that rarest of 5th round picks under Colbert who actually was a very good player.

When you look over Colbert's history of 5th rounders I can only think of arguably three that were decent, Clark Haggans, Willie Gay and Jesse James. Other than those three it has been a virtual wasteland in the 5th round, just one bad pick after another, many failing to make the team as a rookie.

Let us hope that Brian Allen can buck that unfortunate trend and become the next worthwhile 5th rounder.

26th best player selected in 2007, picked 170th.
Tied with Brent Celek and one behind Uche Nwaneri-- all picked in the 5th round.

Very good player over the years. Although he had a really bad SB against the Packers from what I recall. I can't bring myself to rewatch that game, but I recall him being abused a lot that day.

Thanks for everything Big Play William Gay!

Seriously though, will go down as one of the team's best picks in the 5th round ever. Was a stalwart on defense during his prime and helped this team win a Super Bowl.

Brutal.

AR purposely looked his way in that game.

More about Rogers being just that damn fucking good that day, rather than Gay being bad...

Rotoworld is usually wrong.
